    I just tested this out and confirmed the problem. Please report this in the vB4 Bug Tracker here:

    Well, I have [email protected] saved in the banned email addresses. I then received a registration with an email address of [email protected]. So, I turned on aggressive email banning because I figured I still wasn't understanding exactly how it works. Today I had a user with an email address of [email protected] sign up. What am I doing wrong? Thanks guys.

    Yes of course I did. To me, the way it reads it is talking about just the @live dot come. I wanted to make sure that if I disallowed [email protected] it would not just disallow that email but also [email protected]. The help on that section is unclear. Thank you for the help.

    You would not put an asterisk in there, just [email protected] . Did you read the help with that option?

    Banned Email Addresses


    Email address ban lists: You may ban any email addresses from registering and posting. Type in the complete email address ([email protected]), or use a partial email address (as in @example.com).

    Note that partial email addresses are matched from the end of the address unless you enable 'Aggressive Email Banning' below. Therefore if you ban @example.com you will ban [email protected], but if you ban @example that user will not be banned. If you enable 'Aggressive Email Banning', [email protected] would be banned by @example.

    If the email address of a user attempting to register or change their email address matches any of the addresses you specify here will see a no-permission error. For example, if you have banned 'example.com' then a user attempting to use '[email protected]' will be rejected.

    Put a space between each email address or email address fragment.

    Banning an Email

    I use Q and A to prevent spam bots. However, several seem to still get through per day. They all have a variation on the same email: ***[email protected] I'd like to disallow any email with [email protected] in it without banning live.com completely. If I use the following expression will it work? *[email protected] Will the asterisk do the wild card job in this instance? Thanks.
